On October 14, 2012, Employee #1 was working on a Demple drill press that was actuated by a two-palm button control. The palm buttons did not have ring guards and the button for the left hand was not set properly; it had fallen off and was set on a table by another operator. The machine was operated in this condition for several months prior to this incident. According to Employee #1, he reached into the point of operation to retrieve a part with his right hand when the operator inadvertently activated the button that had been removed. Employee #1 was hospitalized for an amputation of his right index finger.
